    I plan to order the acekard 2i and noticed why is it so much cheaper compare to the price of http://www.4coolday.com ... Is the site reliable? No scam? Will it send the card to Malaysia if I ordered it?

    You're asking on an affiliated website if a shop is safe?
    Yes, they're safe and reliable. I've yet to find any negative feedback.

    Of course ShopTemp is safe! Prices always vary between websites. Many people have had good deliveries from ShopTemp.

    Shoptemp is very safe and trustworthy. There's a whole discussion topic about the place with satisfied customers' comments, (mine included). I doubt there will be any trouble sending it to Malaysia, but if there is, Shoptemp will let you know.

    i read some of the feedback and not all customer were satisfied, it's making me a bit distant to order from them, i know they are cheaper than anywhere else but is it worth it if get lost? or if you don't received what you payed for.

    I don't believe there are any real issues with ShopTemp. Most of the complaints seem to be about shipping delays, which are out of the hands of ShopTemp. 4CoolDay for example are also based on China/ KH and will suffer the same issues.

    You also have to remember because GBAtemp is affilated with ShopTemp, people are much more likely to air their issues here than with other retailers.

    You are much safer buying from ShopTemp than 4CoolDay.

    ShopTemp didn't come from nowhere, GBAtemp partnered with an already established suppiler. I believe there were certain criteria set for the partner, such as having perfect english for customer support etc.

    Not everyone can be happy with everything... If they all said that Shoptemp was the greatest shop on earth, you'd say they were suspiciously biased.

    Go buy from where you go buy from...

    Yeah, Shoptemp are quite safe and reliable, they can be trusted as they are affiliated directly with GBAtemp.
    Shoptemp also has quite good prices compares to some other flashcart retailers.
    I've already bought a cheap R4DS for nostalgia's sake and it works perfectly after arriving safely, and I've even generated some affiliate funds.

    I don't agree that shoptemp is safe and there is a lot of negative feedback on the sd cards they are giving out!
    I hate them from personal experiences [​IMG]
    edit: Also if you want it cheap go to priceangels.com .

    The complaints I saw were all about Kingston microSDs, and they have taken steps to fix it.

    They now have a new supplier of Kingston microSDs from Kingston's recommended suppliers, so there should not be any issues.

    I still don't support them even if i am a proud member of GBAtemp.
    It took them Almost 2 months to ship my order so i just asked for a refund. The shipping was in their control as they neglected my order until i sent them a ticket a month after i bought it. They then say that they were going to ship it. Like wtf.

    Let me get this straight,

    you put in an order and 2 months later it was finally shipped. You have never mentioned why the delay, was it an error electronically wise, was their payments glitches?

    Yeah! Pretty much. It sucked really bad to. First i order on April 29. May 2nd they say that they have shipped. June 17 I sent them a ticket then they said that they were going to ship the item. I just asked for a refund back.
    edit: They never mentioned the delays at all. They just said they will ship it after i sent the ticket.

    True enough, free shipping is free but it took my order 4 weeks to arrive.
    But I DO blame the volcanic ash cloud for that.

    Er, I plan to order it now, but I have a question, is it really that fast, 12-48 hours then arrived? What about if I'm at school and the card come then no one help to get it ._.

    No. When you order, a ninja will pop out and kill you. Beware. Be ware. Be aware of the danger. Fear.


    I'm not sure about shipping time...I chose the cheapest option and it took a week or two. They should leave it in the mailbox, unless you insure it.

    I can very much recommend ShopTemp [​IMG].

    Placed and paid for my order of a DSTWO, DSONEi and an AK2i on 19/06/2010 and chose registered airmail.

    Order was shipped on 21/06/2010 and I received it earlier today 28/06/2010.

    So only 9 days from ordering to receiving my package.

    Nice and quick [​IMG].
